Here’s your chance to relive the carnage that was The Kerrang! Awards Nomination Party…
After counting roughly a bazillion votes, we finally unveiled the nominations for the Kerrang! Awards 2016 for you, our beloved readers, to choose from on Tuesday (May 8). As you can tell from the video below, however, we didn’t just want to read out a bunch of names so we asked Creeper, Heck and Muncie Girls to play our event, which was held at the brilliant London boozer Big Red. And when it came to announcing the actual nominations, well, we decided to ask our eccentric pal Count Baron Von Doctorbaron to do it IN THE FORM OF A LIVE SEANCE…
You can watch the footage below!
The Kerrang! Awards will take place on June 9 at London’s Troxy with Justin Hawkins of The Darkness and Benji Webbe of Skindred taking to the mics to present what will be a night of pandemonium. On top of that, for the first time ever, we’ve teamed with Help Musicians UK (HMUK), the country’s leading music charity, for a ground-breaking partnership.
Not only can you be there, but you can also watch Asking Alexandria and more perform once all the partying is done! Head to the Kerrang! Ticket Store now to get your tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Talking about the 2016 event, Kerrang! Editor James McMahon says: “This year’s Kerrang! Awards nominations are the definition of strong. All Killer, No Filler as our 2016 Kerrang! Tour headliners Sum 41 might say. There’s no category you look at and think, ‘Yup, Guns N’ Roses are going to walk away with that…’, and I think that’s testament to just what a strong rock scene – globally, and closer to home – we exist within right now. Normally when I have to write quotes for press releases like this, I say something like, “OMG, I’m so excited about the night!” but to be honest, I just feel a bit sad about it. It’s going to be a bloodbath. Many brilliant bands are going to go home disappointed. I might start drinking now. It goes without saying, mind, that Kerrang! Is very, very proud to be surrounded by as much talent as we have been at any point in our 35 year old history. But yeah, definitely starting drinking now…”
